TU Delft Solar Boat gets Wings to Fly
Stork is the official sponsor of the TU Delft Solar Boat team for the highly competitive yearly Solar Boat Challenge event in the Netherlands.
Part of this sponsorship is the manufacturing of the front and rear wing at the Stork Turbo Blading facility in Sneek. These wings are specially designed to give the boat enough lift to hover the boat above the surface while creating minimal resistance. Manufacturing of the part was simulated offline with a 3D CAD/CAM Siemens NX system and afterwards produced on one of the CNC machining centers Parts are made from special high strength aluminum also used in the aircraft industry.
